_______________________________________________________________________ 
This document should be read in conjunction with the Corporation’s Guide for 
Tenderers (Part A: Explanatory Notes - Service Requirements).  Where appropriate, 
reference is made to the relevant section.
 

Service Specification for Route Nos. 149 & N149 - 07/08/2009 
 
1. TENDERS 
REQUIRED 
 
This document describes the service for which the Corporation requires Tenders and 
Tenderers must submit a fully compliant bid. In addition, Tenderers may wish to draw 
upon their local knowledge to submit alternative bids which offer improved value for 
money in meeting passenger needs. These might incorporate, for example, different 
timings, frequencies, route structures and / or vehicles. The Corporation will welcome 
such bids and give them careful consideration.  
 
For more information, please refer to Section 2.1 of Part A of the Guide for Tenderers. 
 
2. PROPOSED 
CHANGES 
 
At this time, no changes are proposed to the existing service for introduction prior to the 
commencement of the new Route Agreement for Route Nos. 149 & N149.  
 
Tenderers should note that the following alterations (subject to consultation) are 
proposed as part of this Service Specification for introduction with the new Route 
Agreement: 
 
Two frequency options are specified: 
 
Option 1: 
•  Saturday shopping period frequencies are reduced from every 6 minutes to every 8 
minutes.  
 
Option 2: 
•  Mondays to Fridays interpeak frequencies are increased from every 8 minutes to 
every 6 minutes.  
 
Options 1 & 2: 
•  Mondays to Fridays AM & PM peak frequencies are increased from every 6 minutes 
to every 5 minutes.  
•  Two peak flow journeys are specified during the Mondays to Fridays AM peak in 
both directions and during the Mondays to Fridays PM peak ex London Bridge Bus 
Station, Bay F. Thus, there will be a frequency of every 4-5 minutes (14 buses per 
hour) during the busiest hour.  
•  Departures on Route No. N149 are re-timed ex London Bridge Bus Station, Bay F to 
improve interworking between Route Nos. 149 & N149.  
•  Double deck, dual door, 87 capacity vehicles are specified, subject to a satisfactory 
route test.  
•  The designation Route No. N149 is used for contractual purposes only.  This service 
will be marketed as Route No. 149. This includes all publicity, including destination 
blind displays. 
•  Tenderers must identify the cost of the Nightly element of this service 
separately. 
•  Any significant effects on tender submissions and proposals will be negotiated with 
shortlisted Tenderers during the evaluation and with the successful Tenderer post 
award as appropriate.

Service Specification for Route Nos. 149 & N149 - 07/08/2009 
 
5. VEHICLE 
TYPE 
 
Please refer to Section 2.5 of Part A of the Guide for Tenderers. 
 
Route No. 149 & N149 is currently approved for vehicles which are a maximum of 18 
metres long and 2.55 metres wide. A formal route test will be required for vehicles which 
exceed these dimensions. This will be arranged with the successful Tenderer.  
 
The service requirement set out in Section 6 assumes that dual door, double deck 
buses with a minimum capacity of 87 of which approximately 60 should be seated, will 
be used on this route. Luggage space should also be provided. 
 
Tenderers must submit proposals based on new vehicles. These must be of a low floor 
design and be accessible to wheelchairs by means of a powered ramp.  
 
Bids for both conventional diesel powered vehicles and diesel-electric hybrid 
vehicles should be submitted and separate prices for both types are required. 
 
Bids based on a mix of hybrid and conventional vehicles would be welcomed, 
subject to a minimum of 10 hybrid powered vehicles being offered for this 
route (full hybrid operation should be offered for routes with a vehicle 
requirement of less than 10). 
 
Tenderers should refer to the vehicle design (including accessibility) features contained 
in Schedule II to Annex B of the Framework Agreement and Section 2 Part B of the 
Master ITT (Version 2 issued June 2005). 
 
 
Tenderers may also submit bids based on using existing vehicles. Tenderers are 
asked to specify what refurbishment would be carried out on existing buses and the 
expected timescale of those works. See Master ITT (Version 2 issued June 2005).

Service Specification for Route Nos. 149 & N149 - 07/08/2009 
 
6. FREQUENCIES 
 
The level of service (e.g. every 15 minutes) required by the Corporation is described in 
terms of the interval between departures. Whilst a completely regular service at the 
specified frequency should be possible at most times, occasionally a bus may be 
timetabled to depart up to five minutes earlier or later than the regular time. 
 
Tenderers should note that when the specified frequency changes (e.g. between the 
peak and midday periods), the scheduled interval between buses should never be 
greater than that provided by the lower of the two frequencies AT ANY POINT ON 
THE ROUTE. 
 
Tenderers should note that unless otherwise stated all journeys should operate 
between the terminal points defined in each direction.

MINIMUM PERFORMANCE STANDARDS 
 
Please refer to Section 2.7 of Part A of the Guide for Tenderers. 
 
Tenderers should note that the objective of the Operator of Route Nos. 149 & N149 
shall be to operate all scheduled mileage and adhere fully  to the published 
timetable. The Operator must use its best endeavours to achieve this. 
 
The  minimum standards of acceptable performance for Route No. 149 (Options 1 
& 2)
 shall be: 
 
Average Excess Wait Time: 
 
No more than 1.20 minutes 
Minimum Operated Mileage: 
 
No less than   98.00% 
 
The minimum standards of acceptable performance for Route No. N149 shall be: 
 
 
Departing on Time   
 
 
No less than 85.00% 
 
Minimum Operated Mileage 
 
No less than 99.00% 
 
or as notified by the Corporation from time to time. The Operator will be required to 
achieve or better the standards. 
 
QSI Thresholds  
 
The QSI threshold is the standard of performance to be achieved by the operator in 
order to qualify for an automatic contract extension (in accordance with Schedule IX of 
the Framework Agreement). 
 
Average Excess Wait Time Threshold (Options 1 & 2) = 1.05minutes 
 
It is unlikely that the minimum number of QSI surveys for Threshold measurement will 
be conducted on Route No. N149 at present. However, this may change at a later date 
when a Threshold figure may be published. 
 
Summary of proposed QSI coverage: Route Nos. 149 & N149 (Options 1 & 2) 
 
Note: While London Buses undertakes to carry out QSI surveys at the times and 
locations specified below, it may prove impossible to rearrange a survey cancelled or 
nullified at short notice.

Service Specification for Route Nos. 149 & N149 - 07/08/2009 
 
8. RUNNING 
TIMES 
 
Extracts from the public timetable with sample running times for Route Nos. 149 & 
N149 are attached at Appendix A. This gives an indication of the time required to travel 
the route. Attention is drawn to the variations in running times at different times of the 
day. Please refer to Section 2.8 of Part A of the Guide for Tenderers for further 
information. 
 
Tenderers should carefully check the existing running times to ensure that they are 
appropriate in present traffic conditions. Tenderers should particularly check the existing 
running times for the Mondays to Fridays PM peak and the Saturday afternoon 
shopping period.  
 
It is expected that any changes to these running times can be accommodated within 
existing cycle times.  
 
When reviewing existing, and devising new, running times Tenderers should refer to: 
 
•  the minimum performance standards for Route Nos. 149 & N149 in Section 7 
above; 
•  the historical performance data provided in Section 1 Part B of the introduction to 
this ITT. 
 
Tenderers may consider if school summer holiday schedules, incorporating running 
time reductions, are desirable for this route. In this event, schedules and costs must be 
submitted separately. 
 
9. LAYOVERS 
 
Under normal circumstances, layover time on stands and at bus stations should be 
restricted to that required to provide a reliable service. Longer layovers for any other 
purpose may only be taken with the permission of the Corporation. 
 
14

Service Specification for Route Nos. 149 & N149 - 07/08/2009 
 
10. TIMING 
CONSTRAINTS 
 
Route No. 149 should interwork with Route No. N149 to form a seamless 24 hour 
service. 
 
Tenderers submitting bids should bear this requirement in mind when compiling 
schedules. This requirement will be negotiated with the successful Tenderer for this 
route to ensure that optimal interworking/separation is delivered within its schedules. 
 
11. CONTROL 
STRATEGY 
 
Route Nos. 149 & N149 can suffer from the effects of traffic congestion, making 
some form of route control essential in order to achieve or better the minimum 
performance standards for this route. 
 
Tenderers should submit proposals on the control strategy they intend to adopt and 
the type of control they would intend to use by completing the form provided in 
Section 3: Part 7 of this ITT. The cost of this control should be included within the 
main Tender price. 
 
Tenderers should also indicate how they intend to facilitate driver changeovers and 
meal reliefs for this route.  
 
Further information is provided in Section 2.11 of Part A of the Guide for Tenderers. 
 
15

Service Specification for Route Nos. 149 & N149 - 07/08/2009 
 
12. OPERATIONAL 
CONSIDERATIONS 
 
Tenderers should note the following operating considerations affecting Route No. 149 & 
N149: 
 
•  Route No. 149 suffers from major disruption in the Edmonton and Tottenham areas 
during home matches of Tottenham Hotspur football club. 
•  Route Nos. 149 & N149 can suffer from unpredictable traffic delays in the Dalston, 
Shoreditch and City of London areas particularly during Mondays to Fridays peak 
periods. 
 
Tenderers should also note the following factors/events which may have an impact on 
Route Nos. 149 & N149 in the foreseeable future: 
 
•  Proposals exist for large scale office development in the Bishopsgate area. 
•  The ongoing Thames Water main replacement works programme in central 
London will continue to affect these and other bus routes. 
•  The East London Line Extension may affect demand on Route Nos. 149 & N149. 
Therefore, adjustments may be required during the lifetime of the forthcoming 
contract. By June 2010, the northern extension of the East London line to Dalston 
is expected to be complete, with new step free stations at Dalston, Haggerston, 
Hoxton and Shoreditch. By February 2011, the extension of the East London line 
from Dalston Junction to Highbury & Islington is expected to be complete.  
•  East London Line construction works at Dalston Lane may cause delays to the 
service. A proposal exists for a bus station at Dalston Junction which will be built 
over the East London Line Extension Station.  
•  The construction of the new East London line station in Shoreditch High Street may 
cause delays to the service.  
•  As part of the Thameslink upgrade works, a new viaduct is to be built at Railway 
Approach, London Bridge. Works have commenced with completion of the project 
scheduled for 2012. The successful Tenderer will be advised of any road network 
changes when more information becomes available. 
•  There are tentative proposals to redevelop London Bridge Bus Station. The 
successful Tenderer will be updated when more information becomes available. 
 
The above factors have been included to assist Tenderers and represents the 
information currently available to the Corporation. Tenderers should make their own 
enquiries about events which may impact upon the route and should form their own 
views about their likely effect upon it.

painted white so as to reduce temperatures inside the vehicle during the summer

and the Corporation and, where possible, these should be above the front doors on 
the nearside of the vehicles and above the drivers’ offside cab windows.
